Hosts Lisa Gibson and Samantha Sperling have been friends for more than twenty years. On their weekly podcast, they share their daily trials and tribulations navigating life as impatient, occasionally judgemental middle-aged white women.
In their mid-fifties, they are proud to admit that they lost whatever social filters they once had years ago. Every week, they bring conversations to their digital studio that they probably shouldn't share on the internet. They'll explore how annoyed they are about aging while celebrating their quirks. But, be careful if you see them in line at Costco; they're most definitely judging what's in your cart, how you pay for it, and it might even come up on next week's episode.
Join Lisa and Sam for a weekly conversation without filters from a duo that has no trouble admitting they're probably not politically correct. They invite you to join a collective of middle-aged women who have lots to complain about, but prefer to do it in good company!

Fantastic Fun, Right?! ;)

I shake my head at people who haven’t listened to Lisa & Sam yet! Fun and entertaining ladies who just chat about dumb things in our everyday lives! We can ALL relate to them! They chat about hot topics in fandom/entertainment world-not political driven! They chat about what’s going on in their lives.
They’re from Canada, so occasionally some of our foods may differ. (I’m from the USA) Things like that. They are very active on Facebook and Instagram, and interact with us fans throughout the week! I love and look forward to the games like ‘One has to Go’ on Tuesdays as well as ‘Would you rather Wednesday’! It’s total fun every week! I love these gals and they’re kind, funny and thoughtful. What more could you ask for?
Give them a listen. You won’t be sorry!
